Process design and analysis is always based on the management of mass and energy balances. BALAS simulation tool is the most effective way to obtain information on the behaviour of an existing process and get a deeper understanding of the interactions in your process. Built-in link to MS Excel enables easy transfer and customised visualisation of simulation data.
SimulationStore is a web portal that provides an easy access to VTT’s and its partners' Modelling and Simulation (M&S) offering.
- In these pages you can find information about the computational tools and related M&S services provided by VTT.
- By registering to the web pages you can download the installers of the computational tools and different plug-in products.
- In addition you can manage your own licenses related to these products.
- Some of the VTT’s computational tools include Simupedia features. It is also possible to publish interactive models to the SimulationStore using this functionality.
Future models in process chemistry will increasingly be based on a multi-component, multi-phase Gibbs energy approach. ChemSheet is the foremost pioneer in Gibbs’ian process modelling. Taking advantage of unique immaterial constraints, ChemSheet handles reaction rate controlled chemical systems, multi-phase membrane systems, complex materials with surface phases, and much more.
Identification of novel enzymes with specific function by conducting homology based database searches.
Training on the use of the SULCA software is available from the supplier. Training of SULCA software can be one day or more, and can be ordered along the purchase of the licences of SULCA or separately. The training is provided by VTT LCA expert and it can take place either at Customer’s place or at VTT . The content (e.g. SULCA basics, example cases and/or customer’s cases), place and time should be agreed together in more detail.
Metabolic modeling can be an important tool in the development of microbial strains capable of high efficiency production of chemicals or proteins. At VTT we are able to reconstruct gapless metabolic networks for several related species at once using the CoReCo algorithm. To ensure the high quality of the models we created an unique database containing only atom and electron balanced reactions.
System dynamics is a methodology for understanding the behaviour of complex dynamic systems belonging to different domains. Simantics System Dynamics is a free, open source system dynamics modelling and simulation software. The software has an intuitive and easy to use Eclipse based graphical user interface which allows you to configure the whole model structure graphically. In addition to supporting all the common system dynamics modelling operations, the software includes many advanced features, such as structural reusable components, multidimensional variables, and sensitivity analysis.
BALAS® is a steady state simulation package for chemical processes with emphasis on pulp and paper. The software has been developed at Technical Research Centre of Finland over the last 20 years and several Finnish paper mills, engineering companies and equipment manufacturers currently use it.
KilnSimu is used in several industries. Though the technology of rotating drums has been available for over 100 years, it has not been replaced, but remains in active use in many of its traditional applications. The rotary drum provides an effi cient means for both heat and mass transfer in the processing of slurries and other condensed mixtures.
